An Elkhart woman was killed on Monday in a two-vehicle accident on I-65 in Newton County, the Indiana State Police said.

The victim was identified as Anastasia J. Chapman, 23.

According to police, at 11:25 a.m. Chapman was northbound on I-65, two miles north of Demotte, when for unknown reasons she failed to see that traffic ahead of her had slowed and rear-ended a semi-tractor trailer.

Chapman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The operator of the semi, Derek G. Juhl, 28, of Brook, Ind., escaped injury, police said.

At the time of the crash, traffic was backed up due to pothole repair taking place approximately one mile north of the crash location.
